Did you know you can make a batch of smoothies in advance, pour them into mason jars – and freeze for later use? These are great to pack in your kids’ lunchbox & have the perfect consistency by lunchtime.
You can make any smoothie recipe work for this – just lower the liquid ratio to where your smoothie has a very thick texture. You can also add things like yogurt, bananas, & oatmeal as thickening agents. The smoothie should be a ‘scoopable’ texture before freezing.
My favorite combination is frozen berry blend, strawberry yogurt, & a little apple juice. Yum.
Fill the mason jars 3/4 of the way full, and place in the freezer. Place in the fridge overnight for a quick breakfast smoothie, or pack in the kids’ insulated lunch sak with a cooler pack. Shake before opening.
